Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-N325E Notebook ?

Accidentaly spalshed some water on my laptop keyboard.

\015 I accidentally splashed some water on the keyboard of my laptop. I dried it off the best I could, and left it open all night to air out ( I live in an extremely arid climate), and today it seemed to be working fine. A little later in the day certain keys stopped working ( d,m,e, backspace, etc), but some keys still work fine. Also I restarted it and when it booted up it made this high pitched beeping noise. Can I fix this myself?\015

Answers :

You may have to replace your keyboard at best. As this can be a difficult process depending on the laptop, I recommend a trained professional. \015\012
\015\012The loud beeping noise is called a beep code. One beep in most causes is a DRAM failure, which could mean that the problem goes deeper than a few messed up keys. \015\012
\015\012However once electronics become water damaged they are beyond repair. The minute amount of minerals in the water is enough to short out the tiny circuits in the keyboard and cause malfunction.
